Fairies so small they can hardly be seen, except for the laughing child within. Fairies so happy and kind, so gentle and wild, so go on and dance my wild fairy child.

About Franziska

About Franziska

 

I am an artist working primarily with wool and occasionally with other natural elements such as wood or leather. 

I design and felt colourful, quality wall hangings and home accessories which are inspired by the colourful changes of our seasons, the organic shapes of the Irish country side and its many inhabitants.

 

Because of my interest in natural materials I try to reflect what I see and feel in my art. In particular I am intrigued by Irish mythology and its fascinating stories.


 I studied saddlery leatherwork in Switzerland for 3 years, graduating from the Beruflichen Gewerbeschule in  Bern .  This degree gave me a wide knowledge of leather, natural fibres and textiles and encouraged me to develop my art and design skills.

These have been subsequently honoured several times with prestigious awards received from the Royal Dublin Society (Ireland)

I also teach this beautiful craft online and in person. The online wet felting workshops give me an opportunity to reach out to a worldwide audience.


This Uplifting inspirational art can give your home or workspace a contemporary modern ambience.
